November 15, 2016

Provides end-to-end security monitoring and controls, protects regulated ePHI data

RICHARDSON, Texas and NORTH BAY, Ontario – Nov. 15, 2016 – Armor, a leading provider of managed cloud security has been selected by MetricAid, a Canadian technology company specializing in performance- and preference-based physician scheduling, as its security partner. MetricAid uses Armor Anywhere, an innovative security platform that can be deployed within any public or private cloud environment, to protect highly-regulated ePHI data processed by their scheduling software.

“Armor Anywhere is the ideal solution for a small, vertically-integrated IT organization like MetricAid,” said Chris Jones, CTO/CPO, MetricAid. “We’re almost too big to be called a start-up by some measures, but we’re still a young company and everyone still wears multiple hats, including me.  It’s critical that each technology solution and vendor we use helps streamline our workload. Armor delivers on this in a meaningful way so I can focus on refining our solutions and not being confined to monitoring logs for suspicious activity.”

MetricAid’s physician scheduling solutions help hospital emergency departments (EDs) decrease wait times, improve care and reduce readmission rates. Based on extensive expertise, MetricAid helps their clients operate at peak efficiency.

With Armor Anywhere, MetricAid extends their IT resource and better protects critical data workloads through 24/7 security monitoring and advanced threat intelligence. This solution also ensures MetricAid can meet compliance requirements through customizable security controls with the flexibility to be installed on many popular public cloud platforms to comply with privacy and security regulations.

“As a multi-layered, adaptable solution, Armor Anywhere is purpose-built to provide world-class security and assist with overcoming compliance challenges, regardless of the standard or complexity,” Jared Day, president, Armor. “Our partnership with MetricAid is a great example of why Armor is the best option for organizations seeking to enhance security and achieve compliance while maintaining their existing hosting strategy. Combined with our proven threat intelligence capabilities, MerticAid is well-positioned to leave the security and compliance burden to us so they can continue to grow their business.”
